Poliquin stands up for gun rights

Tragedies like the heartbreaking massacre perpetrated in Parkland, Florida, force us to reflect on what we as a society can do to prevent future incidents. For many in Washington, the first thing politicians think about is restricting the ability of law-abiding citizens to exercise their Second Amendment rights. Those politicians are wrong, and I am glad that my congressman is focused on solving the actual problem.

Law enforcement agencies have failed us repeatedly in preventing these incidents and their process must be fixed to protect our communities. I appreciate that Rep. Bruce Poliquin is standing strong in protecting our constitutional rights, while working to reform the FBI and other institutions that have failed us.
